A Legacy is Built with Community Support

A Legacy is Built with Community Support  thumbnail118766
Dozens of community members came out to help recognize the opening of the Thomas Cutinella Memorial Field Concession with a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony. Thirty-eight community members and business organizations who helped see the project from its initial development phase through fruition were honored with an individual plaque as well as their names engraved on a plaque affixed to the side of the building.

Landscapers, masons, architects, painters, electricians, plumbers, utility professionals, staff members, Wildcat Athletic Club supporters, current and former Board of Education trustees and others were recognized for their time, materials and service that helped make the facility a reality.

In addition to being a well-stocked concession for athletic events, students in SWR High School’s Life Skills program will have the opportunity to take part in work experiences at the concession. Supervised by certified special education staff and supported by the district’s food service staff, the students will learn valuable skills including using the register to process sales, setting up and cleaning up the concession before and after events and assisting food service staff in the preparation and service of food items as permitted by regulation.

Frank and Kelli Cutinella, parents of Thomas, were grateful for the many people who embraced the project and helped to not only symbolize the true spirit of community, but to help to keep the legacy of Thomas alive.
